Arsenal Women have agreed a deal to sign USA international winger Tobin Heath. Heath left Manchester United this summer after a year in the WSL. The 33-year-old winger has won two World Cups and two Olympic gold medals.
Heath is considered one of the biggest stars in the women’s game and has 177 caps for the US National Team. Arseblog News was told earlier this week that a deadline day signing was not beyond the realms of possibility but we weren’t given a name.
Former Gunner Anita Asante told Sky Sports News on Thursday that a deal might be in the offing, which was subsequently backed up by the Athletic’s US Women’s Soccer Correspondent Meg Linehan. Having since made a line of inquiry, we are told a deal is very close.

In terms of profile, it’s an enormous signing that will bring a lot of interest from the US, where Heath has been a household name for many years. Tobin is also a big Arsenal fan.
